Course content

The course provides a professional and popular postgraduate programme of study that develops in students a critical appreciation of data science and the use of software to analyse and synthesise data.

Data Science or "Big Data" has never been more important. Modern computing systems and software have allowed greater insights to be garnered from very larger data sets and to provide actionable information.

Graduates from this course will be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to develop and manage data science systems, thus enabling students to enhance their existing skills in anticipation of meeting the increasing commercial demand in this area.
